Fifty-thousand words of authoritative but readable text correct many myths and reveal a myriad of little-known facts. While “war stories” and reminiscences abound, the four years of careful research ensure that the historian will not be disappointed. Profusely illustrated with over 400 photographs, the majority never before published, will please aviation buffs of all varieties.
Five-view sets of plans of the seven variants used in Canada are produced in the popular 1:72 scale and complemented by professionally air-brushed profiles far beyond the expected “trainer yellow”. An appendix covers the individual histories of the over two thousand aircraft used by the Royal Canadian Air Force and Royal Canadian Navy.
